What precisely is a domain backorder? How does the backorder process work?
When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over 60 days when it's inactive, but can still be renewed by its current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domain names. In case a particular name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the moment it's deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people the opportunity to acquire a short and easy to remember domain that may have been employed by some other person up until this moment. In the event that the domain is extremely appealing, several companies may try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain. However, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to end up getting a particular domain than if you try to register it personally.
